Well constructed product, appearance and finish is superior to standard vents, compact size is a plus (doesn't look out of place on roof), easy to install on new or existing roof. One with a piece of 4 inch vent pipe attached so you could attach vent tubing would be a nice option. This item was available online only in my area, in stock was the complete vent kit, did not need complete kit, would be nice if this item was stocked, but easy enough to get online.

I would recommend but the instructions need more info.
The vent comes with a bird screen which needs to be removed if used as a dryer vent. It will get blocked with lint in less then 2 months if not removed. Your instructions say nothing which leads me to believe it is not approved as a dryer vent. Either come out and say this vent is not for dryer use or state that the bird screen must be removed if used as a dryer vent.

Thank you for your review on the model 636 roof cap. Our caps are designed for use as ventilation fan termination caps only. It may, however, be used to terminate the ducting for a clothes dryer IF the bird screen is removed since lint built-up on the screen could pose a safety hazard. This conditional approval is given only if the clothes dryer manufacturer's instructions permit roof ducting. Since we do not manufacturer these caps to be used with a clothes dryer, we do not list this in the installation instructions. The normal application for these caps would be as a termination cap for a bath fan. If you have further questions, please contact our Technical Support Department directly at 800-637-1453.

      Flaps in the wind and cold air comes into bathroom
      Worked fine for the first year, now anytime there is any wind the flapper makes noise and cold air constantly comes into the bathroom. It would be nice if just the flapper could be ordered as a replacement part.

        Usless product
        Purchased two of these and upon opening the boxes I found there was no coupling to attach the insulated vent hose to. Called customer support to get the part number of the coupling used in the roof vent kit, which I didn't purchase because it comes at a higher price with a piece of useless vent hose that cannot be used in cold climates, and he could not give me a number. Acted as if it was the first time anyone had ever requested a coupler. So, you can get the kit and throw the uninsulated duct hose in the land fill or Jerryrig this incomplete product so it is useful. P.S. the hole in the bottom of the hood is to big for a 4 inch starter flange and to small for a 5 inch. Stick a piece of pipe the roof.....and attach it to what? Obviously not interested in making a user friendly product that would please every DIYer/builder on the planet.

          What else do I need to hook up?
          Was having a new roof put on so I bought two of these to have the roofer install them while they installed the shingles. I thought this was a complete kit, but it does not have the tubing and connections to connect with bathroom fans. What additional parts do I need to purchase to make the connections? I do not see any metal tubing etc.
